BASE CARDS:For a cost efficient product Panini did really well with the design. I like the mix of stars and Legends into the checklist of this product for the base cards. There are rookies from the double rookie class to be found as well. The only thing I didn't like is if you are a new collector or didn't know who the rookies were from the class, the rookie cards do not have the rookie card symbol on them so you have no idea that they are a rookie.If that had been included, there would be no problem with the base cards. I know I have mentioned a lot with too much bordering with other products, but when its done right it doesn't bother me as much. This one has a variety of team colors and its all schemed and not just a plain boring white.
INSERTS: The Knights Lance parallel is kinda cool. The normally silver corners are gold in this parallel and the Knights Lance is inserted at the bottom instead of the word Panini. Makes you think about the blog every time you find one. However, the Heroes of The Hall is my favorite insert with the blend of color and darkness. You get a good amount of inserts. Meaning, not overwhelming and just the right amount.
AUTOGRAPHS: The product states 2 autos per box...ours was shorted an auto and the one we got was a redemption. Ouch. So can't tell you an opinion on the design. Would assume they look like the base cards but with autos.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: I like the base card design, the inserts look nice too and there isn't an overabundance and the price is within range of most collectors. The big bang could be here with a decent autograph checklist and with rookie cards (double rookie class so there is a lot to get), two autos, parallels and inserts it shouldn't take too much to get your value back. However, this break did not pull it off for us with a missing auto. But, as an update Panini Customer Service is helping get an auto to put in here to replace the missing one so we will post when that shows up. We will also fix the review numbers below as well.
